The Fee Graveyard
located on Slater's Fork of Black Mountain
The Fee Graveyard is difficult to find. Permission must be obtained from the coal company which controls access to the mountainous area. Like most of the mountain graveyards, the Fee Cemetery is not neatly laid out nor maintained.
A few of the graves are not marked at all save by depressions in the ground, many only have rocks at the head and/or foot. The diagram below indicates a rough location for each of the sections listed below.
Comments have been added about some of what is known about the individuals buried here.
|Access is by jeep and on foot.
Beware of snakes!
